As soon as Henry saw it, I had to get it out for him as he got excited and wanted it straight away. Luckily it's easy to open, and there are no batteries or setting up needed which meant he could start playing straight away.
The set comes with a round egg base with holes for the eggs to sit in. It also comes with a see-through lid. At the top, there is a button that you can press to make the base spin. This is easy to press and can be pressed with the lid on or off. Inside each Egg, it a cute little dinosaur. These dinosaurs stay inside the egg and can't be pulled out. Each dinosaur looks different and are all really bright and colourful. Henry loved that they are dinosaurs and kept going "rarrrww" with them.
The lid to each egg fits on the top of the egg base really easily and can easily be done by a toddler.
The toy is great for colour-matching the base and lid of the egg together. This helps an early introduction to learning colour names and also matching. This is something I am currently focusing on teaching Henry so I am pleased that I can use it to help him learn colours.
Henry who is now 2, found it easy to place all the dinosaur eggs into the base. This really helps his fine motor skills. Without the lid on, when you press the button, all the eggs come flying off and scatter around, just like they have hatched out of the Eggs. Henry loved this aspect of the toy, I think because for him this was a fun form of destruction, which he loves doing.
This toy has been played with loads so far and both I and Henry both love it. I think it's a really clever toy that provides lots of fun and has great educational aspects. It is also a good quality toy that is aimed at children 12 months plus.
This toy is £15.99 and can be bought from places such as Amazon or Argos.
